Things I Like: Belle (Once Upon a Time)

Belle once upon a time ABC

Belle was one of my favorites on the show. She was so sweet, smart, and kind. While her character didn’t have that good of a story post-Neverland, I still liked her throughout the whole series.

Belle meets Rumplestiltskin once upon a time ABC

She’s obviously based on Belle from Beauty and the Beast. But this time, Rumplestilskin is the “beast.” She agrees to be Rumple’s “servant” in order for the Dark One to defeat the ogres and save her kingdom.

But her life with Rumple soon becomes one of love, for both of them. Despite the difference in their characters and personality.

For most of the cursed era in Storybrooke, Maine, she has no memories. Regina has her locked up in a mental ward until Jefferson (the Mad Hatter) breaks her free to get revenge on the Evil Queen.

Her life with Rumple post-curse had its ups and downs. I didn’t really like the story when their marriage had fallen apart.

So much so that she gives her baby to the Blue Fairy, so Rumple wouldn’t corrupt their son. Then he turns up grown and evil thanks to the Black Fairy’s magic and malice.
